Allergies are awesome!!

So for some reason the cottonwood trees are just brutal this year. I really don't have allergies, but every now and then something will set me off. This year it seems to be cottonwood trees. They release this cottony fluff in the air that coats the ground and looks like snow. It usually only blooms for about a week or so. But it is a rough week for those of us that are sensative to them.

Well it turns out that my kids are bothered by it too. Their pediatrician swears up and down that kids couldn't possibly have allergies until they are about 4. But all I know is that one day Peanut was fine, and another day he is a sniffeling , wheezing, red eyed mess. He and Sunshine were just hating it this morning, so I gave them some antihistimine. It did the job, but they were both stoned all morning.

It was sort of a nice break though. They just layed around and I got to post a bunch of stuff to sell on Craigslist. It all worked out for the best.

At one point Peanut just set up camp at my feet with his blanket and loveys and all. He started using my foot as a pillow. It was really sort of pitiful. Just to put him out of his misery, I fed him lunch at like 10 this morning and put him down for an early nap. It just knocked him out.

Sunshine is watching a movie right now in a sort of zombie state. She is too stuborn to take a nap, so she is just fighting it. I give her about an hour before she can't take it anymore and falls asleep.

We'll see.
